You are spoilt for choice. Given a wide range of food items to choose from, be ready to be boggled with a fusion of food delights that the Pink City is beginning to offer to its visitors.
Do not expect the usual of your pyaaz ki kachori or the regular sev puri. Indulge into to foodie delights with the treats of food fusion of Jaipur food market. A modified and fusion version that you can expect the city cafes to offer you is pizza kachori for instance. Sev puri tacos are not far behind to delight your taste buds and leave you finger licking only to want more. Momos or chocolate momos? We say it’s going to be a hard pick as fusion has fused itself into food.
The new trend is to mix the traditional old dishes of the Rajasthani roots with some Western styles. Street food is being fused with other culinary style for a gastronomic. City restaurants are experimenting with cooking styles to offer a different food experience away from the old monotonous one with traditional dishes. Some exquisite delights also take the form of pav bhaji fondue or maybe the bhelpuri bruschetta.
Combining the typical street food of India, the authentic bhelpuri with the Mexican tacos, how bold can our food menu get? Not hypothetical but it’s a real dish on the menu of a prominent cafe in the Jaipur city. Rolla Wrappa in C-Scheme, Jaipur actually serves this to its visitors. Samosas are prepped in a Chinese way, the spring roll fashion. The traditional chole are dropped from the aloo tikki and instead what is being picked are salsa, jalapeno, cheese and bean sauce to go along with the aloo tikki.
Owner of Rolla Wrappa, Mr. Love Vijayvergia quoted that he has seen that street food is a popular religion amongst the food lovers. This gave him the idea of experimenting street food with firangi food. A firangi touch just adds the icing on the cake to street food. Mixing mexican tacos with sev puri chaat or mixing bunny chow (a popular South African dish) with the street food from Mumbai, kadhi bhaji pav is Mr. Vijayvergia’s idea of food experimenting.
Rolla Wrappa is leading in the list of cafes that are extremely bold enough to try new dishes and offer them to their customers. Mixing the most locale of the ice cream, the chuski or barf ka gola as commonly known as with lemon margarita is definitely a leap into food fusion.
What’s the thought behind this unique food fusion now? Mr. Vijayvergiya adds on that parents are very hesitant in letting their children free to try the barf ka gola at a local kiosk as they fear hygiene issues. Thus, combining the chuski with lemon margarita adds flavour to the dish and gone is the fear of the parents of it being a unhealthy food offering.

One of the most loved and eaten in a jiffy street food or road side food as it can be safely said is gol gappa. Also known as paani puri or puchka, the traditional gol gappas are served with a modern zing in four different flavours at the Hitbhuk Mitbhuk restaurant on Tonk Road in the Jaipur city.
